Former President Donald Trump is currently fighting against a civil defamation suit in New York filed by author and columnist E. Jean Carroll, who in 2019 dubiously accused Trump of having raped her in a department store dressing room in the mid-1990s.
The few specific details of the alleged incident were already difficult to believe, and may now have been completely undermined as one of Trump's attorneys highlighted on Monday the "amazing" similarities between her claim and a 2012 episode of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," Breitbart reported.
Carroll's accusation against Trump
In 2019, Carroll released an anti-men book in which she claimed to have been raped and sexually assaulted by around a dozen different powerful and wealthy men, including then-President Trump.
Her vague accusation against Trump allegedly occurred in either 1995 or 1996 when they ran into each other while shopping at the popular Bergdorf Goodman department store. Carroll claimed that they ended up in the lingerie section and Trump asked her to try a piece on, then followed her into the dressing room and proceeded to rape or sexually assault her.
